i made one of my favorite chili recipes for dinner tonight. i'm not big on red meat so i'm more of a chicken/turkey/veggie chili eater and this one is just delicious and fairly easy to make. in keeping with my "eat healthy" post earlier today, i thought i'd share the recipie with you. it's not very spicy, so if you like your chili hot i would kick the chili powder up a little bit but it is so yum, and beans pack tons of protein, too!
